Spent 1 week at Kennett River Holiday Park. Was lovely and quiet, beach across the road, a river to fish from and lovely walking tracks. The only down side was phone signal unless you have telstra you won't get reception. And WiFi was not very great either. So if you're after a getaway from technology and looking for a truly... More

This being our first time to this location, we arrived to see lots parrots in the park. You will be inundated by the parrots to feed out of your hand, with lots of Koala Bears in the trees and sometimes can been seen walking by your camping site. This area has lots of walks and other things to do. The... More

The site was fairly quiet when we were there, facilities are not bad but I can imagine that they would be stretched if the site was full. All staff were very helpful, suggested a couple of walks all of which we enjoyed. The wildlife is fantastic, especially the koala's, we also saw a couple of kangaroo's near the river.

Another 10 day holiday auction. Didn't know what to expect after the bushfires in 2015. Thankfully this area was untouched. Lovely little park on the Great Ocean Road. Very friendly, helpful staff who even gave tourist information advice. Clean, well maintained amenities. Pity there's no dump point but were allowed to empty cassettes in public toilet side. Beach across the... More

I absolutely fell in love with this park the first time we stayed there. To have a pitch with a koala doing acrobatics in a tree right next to you was amazing. The number of koalas and other wildlife was simply awesome. The pitches were grass with plenty of mature trees on site to attract kookaburras, lorikeets and rosellas. On... More

Staying at this place felt like living in a zoo! Our 6 year-old daughter couldn't get enough of feeding the parrots and chasing the ducks. We have also enjoyed watching the birds and koalas. But do keep in mind it's not your typical family-oriented big camp site. No jumping pillow, playground is small and Wi-Fi is very poor. But the... More

We camped here for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff were helpful and friendly. The toilets and showers were clean and cleaned regularly. It was fantastic that you could have a fire and think the rules in place for the use of fires were reasonable. The park itself was beautiful with lots of wildlife. Great place... More

The staff member that served us was rude and abrupt and not at all friendly. He was full of his own self importance. There are 2 male and 2 female showers for over 100 sites. The water is tank water and it did not look clean. The water pressure is shocking. The site was dirt with no sign of grass... More

This is a very good place to camp for a few nights to see some Koalas & Parrots up close or go for a wander down to the beach. It's a very clean campsite with reasonable sized campsites. If I was to point out anything bad it would be the male amenities on the far end of the park need... More
